Re: “Irving Shipyard workers vote for strike mandate

Ron Barnaby,

You aren't qualified to comment on the union's stance or views regarding this CBA negotiation because you do not work at The Shipyard and therefore you have no knowledge of the facts at hand nor any insight into the daily experience of said union members. Your statement is just speculative yet blind rhetoric, or political rhetoric designed to belittle and troll... probably a little of both. Read the article -- safety concessions are being asked for by the company. Safety costs big industry money; any company that wants to cut back safety is greedy. A union that wants to maintain (or improve) current safety standards is obviously nothing more than concerned about the well being of it's members. Safety is a paramount right of modern workers and shouldn't ever be compromised (amongst cranes, heavy equipment, welding, steel, fumes, an ever-changing construction site where confined spaces are built, etc).

Re: “Caplan remembers when

Wow, talk about earning yer stripes. Inspiring story. I wonder who that opening band was... And I wonder if they grew up yet.

Re: “Will Halifax lose shipbuilding work?

Also, I worked on the first of the new Coast Guard boats. I believe the Pearl Mist story and the naming of the first Coast Guard ship were covered in the local media: The Chronicle Herald, CBC radio and local TV news.

Re: “Will Halifax lose shipbuilding work?

The shipyard actually does do new constructions. I have personally, in the past 5 years, worked on Irving's own newly built supply boat, The Atlantic Condor, as well as an ill fated, failure that was supposed to be a cruise ship, The Pearl Mist.
